NUTRITION AND HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Healthy habits reinforce normal body functions and influence healing, aging, weight and quality of life. Proper nutrition and hydration, rest, exercise, and stress management are vital. The Centers for Disease Control has reported that cancer, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, obesity and arthritis are all preventable through good nutrition and lifestyle practices.
The typical American diet is highly processed and lacks sufficient nutrient rich foods such as healthful proteins, fats, vegetables and fiber. Chemicals such as pesticides and preservatives and also depleted soil conditions worsen our food supply, leaving us generally overfed yet undernourished. Adding to the body's burden are myriad toxins, chronic stress and sedentary lifestyles. Resulting nutritional deficiencies, toxic overload and excess weight contribute to pain, fatigue and disease processes.
A holistic doctor considers details from your health history, available laboratory data as well as your own wellness goals to determine ways to support your good health. A non-invasive, muscle testing procedure can provide additional insight regarding the energetic balance of organs, glands and body systems. Personalized supplement recommendations and healthy diet and lifestyle guidance are popular ways to enhance wellness.
